Loire Valley, France, 2017
Mainly situated on calcareous clay soils around the hill of Sancerre, the Domaine des Chaintres covers approximately five hectares divided up into a multitude of small plots. The vines are cultivated according to the principles of sustainable agriculture. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are gently crushed and the juice fermented at low temperatures and the wine is aged on its fine lees. Aromatic floral aromas of white blossom and grapefruit on the nose, the palate is refreshing and dry.
